Exhibition on Slave Life
From: John Vlach <JMV@gwuvm.gwu.edu>
I wanted to let you and the other members of the southern history list know that my recently published book BACK OF THE BIG HOUSE: THE ARCHITECTURE OF PLANTATION SLAVERY has just been turned into an exhibition. Sponsored by the Library of Congress Interpretive Programs Office, this show will be in circulation for the next three years. In 1995 it will appear in Baton Rouge, Knoxville, and Washington D.C. among other venues. Many southern sites are already booked until 1997 but it may be available for any of your institutions. In its current form the exhibition portrays the intimate details of slave life on antebellum plantations and illustrates how slaves created their own landscape within the confines of the plantation. For further information contact the Jennifer Bride at the Library of Congress : (202) 707-1993.
